"WHITBY in SHORTS" - the first of our monthly short-film nights, at the Coliseum in Whitby last night [Wed. 7th January], was a resounding success. Close to a full house turned out on a cold winter's night to partake in a showcase of talent and a varied selection of films, nearly all made by local people of all ages up to 85!
The evening was an ideal occasion for net-working, and after the event, eleven people previously unknown to the organizers came forward to offer their services in every area of film-making - three of them admin people.
Listen. Film in Whitby is picking up steam!
Programme to be announced shortly.
